Put on the naughty music, it's food porn time.

Sure, I'm marrying my best friend.  It's a beautiful day . . . .  Blah blah blah.  But let's get real: the reason to get married is to have a tasting.  You know my motto: food before dude.

And oh is there going to be some delicious food that evening . . . . 


Bundle of Italian spicy greens with grilled artichokes, goat cheese crostini, a truffle vinaigrette.


Filet mignon with chanterelle mushrooms, truffle mashed potatoes, garlic chives, and pinot noir reduction.  Truffle. Mashed. Potatoes.  Le sigh.


Sake marinated black cod with wasabi whipped potatoes, Chinese long beans, and ginger jus.  Me so hungry.


Wild mushroom ravioli with basil cream sauce.  It's possible that I licked the sauce off the plate.  I'm no lady.

The white gloves totally came off when the desserts came out.  We're doing a dessert buffet, and I asked our coordinator whether the chef would be able to put a few of our favorites on the table.  He totally brought on the awesome:


Cheesecake skewers dipped in chocolate.   While anything on a stick is guaranteed to be delish, there was a bit too much delish here.  We asked the chef to miniaturize this man-size dessert into easier-to-handle cheesecake lollipops.


Warm bread pudding with chocolate sauce.  Da bomb.


Mango with sticky rice.  Oh ma gawd.  Do you see the pearl dust?!


S'mores shot.  S'mores?  Mores, please.

Okay, I'm off to lick the screen now.

What is your favorite dessert?  Any chance you'll be serving it at the wedding?

::whimper:: Yowza, that looks phenomenal. Can I come to your wedding? Pretty please? ;-)

I'm with Bridechka on not really having a favorite dessert, because I'm a total sweet tooth and I love everything, but we are serving one of my favorites: chocolate marble cake with chocolate pudding filling! This was always my birthday cake request as a child, and eating it again at our cake tasting filled me with supreme joy. We're also having lemon cake with raspberry filling, which I also love. (Man I hope we have leftovers!)

Picking a favorite dessert is like choosing one child over the other - impossible. That is one of the reasons why we're having a dessert table. Yum!
